The Two Simplest  Success Tips Ever!

Craig is a business man, who loves nothing better than riding in his hot air balloon. He did have one mishap when a sudden wind quickly took him off his course.  Several minutes later the wind forced him down into a bunch of trees.  Craig was safe and unharmed, but his balloon was caught in the trees and dangling about ten feet from the ground.  He knew that his wife (whose job it was to follow him in the car), would arrive soon, so he waited patiently.  

Seeing Craig's descent, Mr. Madison was walking near where Craig landed.  He rushed over to make sure that Craig was OK.  

"I am fine, but where am I?" responded Craig.  "You are in a balloon gondola stuck in a tree about ten feet from the ground.  
"Are you a politician?"  asked Craig.  
"Yes, in fact, I am the Mayor." responded Mr. Madison,  "How did you know?
"Although your answer is correct, it is nonetheless useless.  I still do not know where I am".

"I can only assume that you must be in management", said Mayor Madison.  
"How did you know that?"  
"You have a good view from where you are, yet you don't know where you are or where you are going. You are in the same situation that you were in before I got here, but now your predicament is my fault!"


Two of the simplest and most successful tips ever!

  1. Do Not Assume
  2. Inspect What You Expect

Just about all of my mistakes are a result of my ignoring one or both of these two tips.  

Do Not Assume...

You have probably heard how ASSUME  can be broken down into A##-U-ME  which can make an A** out of U and ME.

Take the time to get all the facts in order to clearly understand each situation.  Your time is valuable, I have found that a little extra time up front, can save so much time later.  Do it right and you do not have to do it again.

“Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won't come in.” ~ Isaac Asimov

“While you judge me by my outward appearance I am silently doing the same to you, even though there's a ninety-percent chance that in both cases our assumptions are wrong.” ~ Richelle E. Goodrich,


Inspect What You Expect...

I am NOT suggesting mcro managing, rather consistently spot checking prcesses and results.  This type of quality control will have a real impact.  

Since your employees and/or enrollees know that their work may be under scrutiny, performance and quality increases.  The other benefit is that you can detect a problem before it reaches the customer.  

You CARE about what happens, right?  Then inspect what you expect.  Do it as a 'matter of fact' part of your work ethic.  Your people will see it as 'caring' rather than intrusive.   You are simply doing your job.

How or what should you 'inspect'?

May I suggest that you inspect

  • That which is important
  • That which is agreed
  • That which insures or creates results

"Get what you inspect, because what you expect is not always what you get." ~ George Pierce

Thank you for reading, my friends, I wish you much success.
